Another round of our answers to the imponderable questions that lead people to this blog:
- chances of supreme court of virginia providing a petition rehearing: Not good. For example, in 2007, the Court decided 358 petitions for rehearing. It granted 13. In 2008, it decided 367 petitions for rehearing and granted 23. I suspect that this is because the petition for rehearing is a fundamentally poor advocacy vehicle; it is short and (because of its procedural posture) inherently lacking in credibility.
- roger creager to hire: Creager to hire, you wish? Contact him you must! Yes, yes. That is the way of things. The way of the Force.
- how often does virginia supreme court accept medical malpractice appeal? Although I don’t have statistics to back this up, it’s my impression that the SCV accepts med mal appeals disproportionately often. Same goes for appeals in local government cases.
- attorneys who write pet trusts in va: Thankfully, I have not yet sunk to that level of desperation. Call me when Whiskers is ready to sue her trustee. (Just kidding. I hate cats.)
- supreme court of virginia appellate practice: This is a dangerous one, because I am sure to leave someone out by accident. That’s how feelings get hurt. Off the top of my head, the lawyers I can think of with established SCV appellate practices (loosely defined as “the people I bump into a lot”)–beyond your appellate friends here at the Firm on the Move (TM)–are Steve Emmert, George Somerville and the assorted luminaries at Troutman Sanders, John Davidson, the aforementioned Roger Creager, Frank Friedman, John Eure, Official Friend of De Novo Melissa Scoggins, Joe Rainsbury at LeClair, and the Biglaw legions at Hunton and McGuire Woods.
